They started to the door.

5. "I woke up and didn't know where I was...”
Saturday night usually means that I go out. I have a pack of good friends and we always go to the same pub to start the night out. Generally, after we've drunk enough we decide to change places. Mostly, we go to a nearby club where we dance and try to pick up some girls. I don't usually remember how and when I get home, but I'm happy that I wake up in my bed.
One Sunday, however, I woke up and didn't know where I was.
6. The Day Music Died
The police were everywhere. They arrested every single man who was involved in music. They took away their instruments, they closed recording studios, rehearsal rooms and concert halls. People either gave their stereo systems away or hid them carefully. There were no radio stations and the only TV channel was the one controlled by the regime. Soon, all people could hear were the endless politicians' lies.
Chris liked it, he had always loved silence. Finally, his life was about to improve.

12. In A Dark Forest Silence Brings Nightmares
"Keep calm, breathe and concentrate." I kept telling myself. It didn't really matter how hard I tried, I still couldn't figure out where I was. This forest was so immense!
It was getting darker and I started to lose hope if I was going to find my way out. I felt through my veins that I would need to spend the night among these tall, dark trees. I found a small hole in the ground, yet big enough for me to fit in. I felt somewhat safe, yet the darkness was terrifying. Suddenly, I thought I heard a noise.

But for now they've only achieved one thing, I feared every knock on my door.
14. We Expected A Nice Trip
Five good friends, four drivers, big and safe car. This holiday trip seemed to be perfect. We got in the vehicle, turned on some great music and set off for the seaside. We didn't reach the outskirts of the city when we got stuck in the longest traffic jam ever. After three hours of almost no advance, we decided to send one of us ahead to see how long distance we were still to cover. He went out about an hour ago, his mobile was with us, there was no sign of him. We became quite worried.

16. Christmas Obsession
I'm writing to you because I want to share something with you. Ever since I came to this city I can't believe what I see. Can you imagine that on Sundays people don't go to Church to praise our Lord but they visit these shopping malls? What a disgrace! What blasphemy! Now, just before Christmas, it's even worse. Very few people remember what this holiday is about, they only talk about presents, food and money. I can barely stand it. Let me tell you exactly what it looks like...
17. I Lost It! I Lost It!
"Mike! Throw me the knife!" Paul shouted with fear.
"I can't find it! I can't find it!" Mike was looking all over his clothes.
"What?!" Paul swore and pushed against the door harder.
"Mike, either throw me the knife or we run as fast as we can!"
Paul let the door open and the swarn of zombies could easily get out of the building. As they were running, Paul tripped and fell. It didn't take long for the undead to feast on him. Mike was terrified, he kept shouting through tears: "I lost it! I lost it!"
18. Old Man Dying
He couldn't do many things any more. He was weak and he felt his mind was also not that bright as it used to be. A lot of people came and went, a lot of people with fake smiles and trivial questions occupied his time. What was he supposed to say to them if he hadn't seen them for more than 30 years. He hoped they hadn't shown up because of his fortune, yet he knew this hope was all in vain. One day, however, a guest came, someone he wouldn't have expected to see anymore after theyd graduated from high school. Gosh, she was still beautiful!
